Kokkuvõte

Edendamaks alushariduse kvaliteeti ja kergendamaks lasteaiaõpetajate tööd, on Eestis ja mujal tõstetud õpetajate töö- ja haridusalaseid nõudeid. Lasteaiaõpetajad tunnustavad kõrgemaid nõudeid kui oma staatuse tõusu sümboleid, ent tajuvad samas, et lisanduvad kohustused muudavad töö üha raskemaks. Uurimuse eesmärk oli välja selgitada lasteaiaõpetajate hinnangud ja selgitused muutustele oma töö raskuse suhtes. Ankeetküsitlusele vastas 628 Eesti lasteaiaõpetajat, neist viieteistkümnega tehti hiljem individuaalne eluloointervjuu. Sõltumata staažist leidis enamik vastajaist, et töö on muutunud raskemaks, eelkõige lastesse, lapsevanematesse ning vahetusse töökorraldusse puutuvas. Samas väärtustasid vastajad oma ametinimetuse muutumist kasvatajast õpetajaks, erialaste haridusnõuete tõusu ning õppekavamuudatusi õpikäsituse ja õpetaja valikuvabaduse asjus. Lähtudes Pierre Bourdieu sümboolse kapitali teooriast, arutleme lasteaiaõpetajate professionaliseerumise võimaluste üle.
